L8 Flotect® Level Switch
Flotect® is a registered trademark of Dwyer Instruments, Inc. Inconel® is a registered trademark of Huntington Alloys Corporation
Series L8 Flotect® Liquid Level Switch features a leak proof body  and float constructed from tough, durable polyphenylene sulfide which  has excellent chemical resistance. Because the liquid level snap switch  is magnetically actuated, there is no direct mechanical linkage to leak  or fail, assuring longer life and decreased maintenance costs. This  inexpensive unit is ideal for liquid level alarm, indication or control.  Installation is quick and easy - simply install in a horizontal position with  the index arrow pointing down.  The L8 Flotect® Liquid Level Control is UL recognized as an industrial  motor controller per UL standard 508, suitable for mounting in a  protected environment. This lightweight switch can be used in  numerous chemical processes, industrial systems and similar  applications where process conditions are compatible with  polyphenylene sulfide, ceramic 8 and 316 stainless steel. This liquid  level switch provides accurate setpoint control of liquids with specific  gravities as low as 0.6. This compact and reliable control is designed to  handle temperatures up to 212°F (100°C) and pressures to 150 psig  (10 bar).
